Feb 8th 2012 2:46PM oo did not know that, but seriously why would you drop inscription? Of course, with the introduction of epic gems, the best profession min-max is blacksmithing but you still need a second profession.
Feb 8th 2012 2:41PM Yes, but when you do it at the edge of a boat, zepplin, or cliff while somebody is running, you pretty much guarantee their demise =b
Feb 8th 2012 2:01PM @Andydavis I'm pretty sure the coast of DMF island is the ONLY place that drops the sea pony. The sea turtle mount, on the other hand, is fished from Northrend or Cataclysm pools so technically you can fish the turtle mount from DMF island, but those pools tend to be fished pretty hard so it won't be very time efficient unless you want the DMF pool loot anyways.
Feb 8th 2012 1:48PM The only thing I don't like about fishing is when I need to fish a pool. I have achieved Illustrious Grand Master Fishing, yet I can't even aim and release reliably. It needs to be changed to Illustrious Grand Master Clicker cause honestly my toon can't fish worth a damn.
Feb 8th 2012 1:40PM Dropping from LFR was the biggie. I have tons of these lying around cause I only do world events on my main but run all my alts through LFR.
Feb 8th 2012 1:32PM What Shinae said. That stuff is so addicting, I'd rather hop on a dps alt and run heroics over running one without the satchel on my tanks.
Feb 8th 2012 1:30PM @Alex on Brixus' question: Actually you CAN win two items in a row, just not with the role bonus. It happened just yesterday when two No'Kaleds dropped and only one rogue and 2 healing shaman were in group. The rogue won the first roll with the roll bonus, and then won the second item by rolling higher than the shamans since none of the shamans had roll bonus either. In other words, the rogue rolled a 132, shamans rolled 57 and 98 for the first No'Kaled, and then the rogue rolled 89, shamans rolled 3 and 27 for the second No'Kaled (numbers are made up but results are real).
Feb 8th 2012 1:23PM @SamLowry Sounds a little too easy mode, all you would ever have to do is aoe damage and all the mobs automatically come to you. A lot of tanking nowadays you can do with your eyes closed since the boss stays relatively stationary for several fights and lots of audio cues. With adds automatically coming to you, that would be even more so.
But I like how you put it, "bubble of threat", reminds me of that little guy from Surf's Up "CAN YOU SEE THE HAPPINESS EMANATING FROM ME??" I'm sure mobs would attack him first.
Feb 7th 2012 1:23PM There is virtually no white vendor gear past 45 and even the gray gear are drops from mobs which means you might as well do it naked (or cheat and farm the gray items on a different toon and post it on AH). I like a hard challenge, but this is just self-cutting.
Feb 6th 2012 5:00PM I think these are two entirely different issues that are just consequently linked together. It is an undeniable fact that barking in trade for hours at a time trying to find a group was pure madness. But one of the results was that you got to know the people on your server, the guilds, the good and the ugly. More time spent with your fellow server mates through the forced interaction had the (un)intended consequence of fostering the server community. Now that the forced interaction is gone, basically the only interaction that is left is within/across guilds, with an intimate knowledge of trade chat trolls. At least with normal/heroic raid pugging, the trade bark remains so there is still some interaction.
I actually like both models and hope they continue encouraging use of both. I like the fact that I can join or leave a group with relatively minor consequences to all parties involved. RL happens and leaving an LFR midway has almost no impact to the group or to myself. Running with guild/server mates has the high consequence of hurting the flow of the group, wasting group time trying to find a replacement that doesn't mind being locked out to previous bosses, and maybe even hurting my own reputation and not getting an invite in the future. With the added cost, comes the benefit of community though. Before, I actually knew which guilds were epeen jerks and which were actually pretty decent folk. Now, all I have is some bias on which servers I'd rather avoid in LFD/R (sorry Ragnaros, nothing personal)
